Please don't take my question the wrong way but...

For the white mommies,when you go to the salon,do you get your hair styled? I'm asking because I notice that a lot of white women will go to the salon and come out exactly how they went in,except with an haircut.Is that because they only wanted a cut,or is that what you do? I hope I don't sound rude asking this,I was just curious.

  • I go to the haidresser to get my haircut. I am not into flamboyant or gawdy things so I keep the same style for a long time. I like the natural look most. I have long curly hair so it works for me. I just get it cut and thinned when I need to. I dont even use hair products besides shampoo and conditioner in my hair.

  • I personally just go in for a cut. A lot of salons now charge you to have your hair styled. I used to get it styled when it was free but I'm not going to pay an extra $40 for it.

  • You can pay a few dollars more to have your stylist dry and style your hair. When you find a look you like, there's nothing wrong with keeping it the same--but maybe with a little variation!

    My hair is shoulder length so, I often wear it up or with a hair clip, but I always get highlights and bob style cut with long bangs and chunky layers.

  • I know I can pay a few bucks to have it styled. But i know how to style my own hair. So, why bother>? My cousin is actually a hair stylist. I have this argument with her often LOL.

  • White hair is different from black hair. (I'm only assuming you are black. Forgive if I am wrong.)

    As a general rule, white hair is more fine than black hair so it doesn't hold a style by itself very well. Of course every womans hair is different from the next.

    I get my hair styled if I have some sort of occasion and I can't do what I want with it on my own. Otherwise, I'd go in for a cut, color or trim. More maintenance type things.
